Good buzz- busy Friday night. Though, took us 40 minutes to get our food and a few tables around must have been waiting for a similar time. Can’t help but think they were prioritising deliveries which was not good to see. When the food came, the sides were hot but the burgers were lukewarm, verging on cold. In terms of taste, pretty average. Lot of promise but won’t rush back here.

Really good food. Had the chicken and bacon burger which was amazing. We tried 3 of the dips which were all really tasty and made the food stand out from other burger places in my opinion. All in all amazing food and definitely worth a visit! Will be visiting again.

Food was great, flavours of the hot sauce for the wings and chilli chicken burger were great. If you don't like ice in your soft drink though, I would suggest you ask for no ice as our coke came with mostly ice

Food was really good. We asked for wings as a starter but eveything came out together, the mains were then re-made which was good of them.

Burgers were nice, not worth being about £12 each though. Cajun fries were no better than 5 guys so probably wouldn’t pay that much for them again. Buttermilk wings were incredible (highlight of dinner). Just think it was overpriced for what we actually had but definitely not the worst place I’ve had dinner.

Burger did not come with any salad in the burger such as lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, tomatoes. Thought the burger was basic was the price. The cajun fries were delicious though.

Reservation was made for 9pm, but was not made aware that the closing time is 10pm. I was waiting for the rest of my family to arrive and the waitress was demanding that we order without them which is absolutely appalling. Do not come here! There are so many brilliant restaurants in Edinburgh but unfortunately this one is not one of them.

Overall an ok evening. Food was really good and enjoyed our burgers and sides, drinks were also lovely. Atmosphere was horrific. Music was so loud you couldn’t hold a conversation, staff seemed uninterested and I don’t think I saw one person smile or attempt a friendly face. Service was also very slow, we were sat at our table for 20 minutes before a drinks order was taken even though there were a group of servers stood chatting by the till. Such a shame as it was our last night in Edinburgh and we were really looking forward to a nice night out. I’d recommend the food 100% but not the restaurant itself.

Happy with the food - double cheeseburger and parmesan truffle fries were excellent, and the outdoor seating was fab.

Place seemed a bit understaffed though....servers were busy and it took a while just to get our menus, etc. People around us were popping inside to get more drinks and pay the bill.

The food was amazing, great quality and flavours, as well as short waiting time. The staff were superb! The only thing was the music was a bit too loud. But would highly recommend and visit again.

Came here on a recommendation from a Midlands food blogger (insta @jimweston) and was not disappointed.

Table booking service online was very easy to use. Upon arrival, the restaurant was spotlessly clean and the atmosphere was brilliant.

Staff were attentive and helpful, even advising us that their portions were large and we could order fewer sides! They weren’t wrong! The portion sizes are very generous and absolutely delicious.

Not a cheap eat, but excellent value for money.

10/10 We will be back next time we are local.

I’ve dined at Butta Burger before. But on the last 2 occasions the service has been extremely poor. I’ve been served glasses of water with lipstick and congealed food and had to ask for a clean glass. Left for long periods unattended by staff even though it was quiet. Can’t fault the food, excellent as always. Poor service continues to let it down.

We were really disappointed with our visit here. The music was far too loud and disruptive. We ordered chicken wings as a starter so our daughter could eat first, the waitress forgot to put these through and they arrived once we had finished our mains. When putting water down on the table the waitress knocked food out of my partner's hand, obviously an accident but not great service at all. The burgers themselves were disappointing, the beef tasted off or old.

I had the chicken chilli cheese burger and it was absolutely outstanding. My wife had the hotdog and son the classic and each was just as good. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere, look forward to going back, highly recommended!

From start to finish dining at Butta Burger was amazingly great. Service was fast and friendly. Food was just out of this world for portion size and taste. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and will be back again.

Unplanned day trip from Northumberland to Edinburgh spending valuable time with my 15 yr old son. The booking process was straightforward, service was great and the food delicious. My son hasn’t stopped talking about returning again soon. Thanks for the warm welcome :)

Really good burgers and fries, but busy so getting service was okay but not swift.
Pretty pricy for a relatively simple meal, so I’d not be rushing back for more.

The restaurant is lovely and clean, great design and felt welcoming and fun. The food was absolutely fantastic - one of the best burgers I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a few!). The fries were also amazing: so crisp and full of flavour. A great experience; we loved it and the food being such good value in a big city was a bonus. We’ll definitely be back and would love Butta Burger to expand to Richmond in North Yorkshire!

Burgers were lovely. We went for the chicken burgers and glad we did as they were great. The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 was for the fries. We ordered rosemary and Parmesan fries. They were covered in Parmesan (too much) and not any rosemary. Service fab and outdoor seating outside too.

When we arrived they couldn’t find our booking on their system despite us having confirmation. They then forgot to make half of our order and this was only rectified after asking them 15 minutes after we had our food. We then had to wait for the rest of the order to be made and there was no apology given for the mistake.
The food is good but really not worth the hassle

Excellent service and great food. Did well with simple things that others get wrong, such as actually bringing the water we'd ordered and refilling without being asked. Good value and all food and drink was excellent, would definitely go back.
